        Rockville is a fun agrarian community, seeking community unity with several events planned each year.  All Rockville residents are encouraged to participate!  Food is offered at most events and a good time is had by all.

        Appreciation Breakfast is in February when we recognize our volunteers.  Breakfast is provided by the town, free to all who attend!  All residents are welcome to join and mingle over breakfast.

        Arbor Day is usually in April, where everyone brings a dessert to share and a tree is planted.  Our existing trees are also pruned.  Everyone is welcome!  

        Rockville Daze features a country store, live music and bounce house. This event funds the other events held throughout the year: hot dogs and hamburgers are served at a cost of $5 per person.  This event is normally held in October and great for the whole family.

        Rockville’s Christmas Party is held in early December.  Santa and Mrs. Claus often make an appearance.  Christmas carols are sung and everyone brings a treat to share. We have enjoyed the piano playing of our neighbor Bob C. for decades and are looking for a new pianist to accompany the carols.  The entire community welcomes people of all ages for this family event.

        Communtiy Emergency Response Team exists to help our village respond to environmental or other possible catastrophes.  We are looking for volunteers to join our team.  Please contact Megan Honer-Orton to join the team: 435-772-3393

        UTAH GOVERNOR, SPENCER COX DECLARES MARCH 2022
        FLOOD AWARENESS MONTH IN UTAH

        Flood Awareness Month in Utah Declaration

        Floods in Utah

        • Six inches of moving water is enough to knock you off your feet.
        • One foot of water will float your vehicle, and two feet can wash it away.
        •  The number of landslides is increasing every year.
        • As a homeowner, you are more likely to experience a flood than a fire over the span of a 30 year mortgage.
        • Most homeowner policies don’t cover floods – you need a separate policy to be fully protected.
          Floods: What you should know when living in Utah

        Flash Floods

        • Flash floods are the most dangerous of all types of flooding and rank first as the cause of flood related deaths in the United States. Any storm that generates a great amount of rainfall in a short time can generate a flash flood.

          What’s a Slot Canyon Flash Flood

        Do You Live in a Floodplain?

        • Know your risk by checking to see if you live in a floodplain. Look up your address in the Flood Map service center to learn if you live, work, or travel in areas prone to flooding.

        Get flood insurance

        • Most homeowners insurance doesn’t cover flood damage. Do an insurance check-up with your agent to make sure you have the right coverage. Just 1 inch of water can cost up to $25,000 in damage!

        In 2022, Utah First Lady Abby Cox is challenging Utahns to #ShowUpforService over 1,000,000 times in their communities, organizations – and for each other – creating countless moments where we can grow and succeed together.

        The 1-2-3 Challenge

        In order to accomplish this lofty goal, she’s created the 1-2-3 Challenge for social media.

        SEE 1: Think about someone who has served you personally, or who has served in our community. Thank them by posting on social media about them, using the hashtag #ShowUpforService and tagging us @ShowUpUtah.

        SERVE 2: Pay it forward! Decide on two acts of service YOU will do, and post about it before, during, or after you serve. This can be part of your original post or a separate post entirely. Go wild with it!

        INVITE 3: Now you challenge three people to participate with us by creating their own 1-2-3 Challenge post and doing service in their own spheres!

        We are service minded people here in Utah. I have no doubt that by working together we can help the First Lady meet her goal and accomplish 1,000,000 acts of service across the state. On behalf of Governor Spencer Cox and First Lady Abby Cox, we thank you for your help in spreading the word as we aim to accomplish this act of service goal in 2022.
